A VETERAN from World War Two relived one of the most famous moments from the war as he was invited to the premiere of Dunkirk last week.

Alfred Smith, 98 from Shoebury served in the Royal Army Service Corps during World War Two.

With ten other veterans, Alfred took to the red carpet where he enjoyed the world premiere of Dunkirk at Leicester Square’s Odeon Cinema.

Speaking on the night, he said: “The film was absolutely out of this world, it was lovely to hear people cheering as we walked down the red carpet, it took my breath away.”

Alfred met Prince Harry at Kensington Palace ahead of his big night.

He said: “He was such a charming man, he took his time and chatted with all of us, he was very good. We did not go into too much detail about Dunkirk but there were 11 of us so he had to make time to see us all.”

Alfred had a great time except for the length of the day.

He did not get home to bed until 2am!

Alfred arrived at the premier wearing a suit with his great collection of medals attached.

Among them was the Légion d’Honneur which Alfred received in 2015 for his bravery at Dunkirk.

The medal is highest honour a soldier can receive from the French military.

Alfred was evacuated from Dunkirk by a Paddle Steamer and fought in the D-Day lands before he was hit by shrapnel on the beach.

He said: “I was awake for 48 hours on the beach with no food or water, eventually ships came in, but could not quite get to shore, so I had to swim a paddle steamer just off.”

The moment Alfred got onto the boat, he blacked out.

When he woke up, he was in a boiler room in the belly of the boat.

He said: “The next thing I knew, I was soaking wet in my uniform, we made port in Harwich.”

When he woke up in Harwich, Alfred found out that only 31 came home out of 107 of his troop.
